Ajman to launch property dispute committee

The Ajman government is setting up a committee to speed up the resolution of property disputes.

The Ajman government is setting up a committee to speed up the resolution of property disputes. "This committee will be looking exclusively at real estate conflicts that have arisen due to a party not meeting his contractual obligations," said Omar al Barguthi, the director general of the Ajman Real-Estate Regulatory Authority (ARRA). According to Mr Barguthi, the new entity will have the support of the Government of Ajman as well as the ministry of justice.

"The committee will be formed of five members nominated by the Executive council and headed by an experienced judge assigned by the ministry of justice," said Mr Barguthi. "Any person can file a case there. Whatever this authority decides will be implemented and go into effect. It will be faster and cheaper than going to the court." ngillet@thenational.ae
